Tax Credits for KCU Donors

Make A Difference

Help fund essential health screenings for local, at-risk children and earn tax credits for your contributions to KCU. Gifts designated to Score 1 For Health are eligible for Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits. 

Each year, Score 1 For Health provides free health screening assessments to over 12,000 children from low-income, under-resourced communities in Kansas City. When health concerns are identified, Score 1 families are referred to local health care partners for free or reduced-cost medical, vision and dental treatment. 

Carry it Forward

Only Score 1 donations made during the 2018 calendar year are eligible for NAP tax credits. If the credits exceed your total Missouri state tax liability, they may be carried forward up to five years. KCU is approved to offer $100,000 in NAP tax credits, therefore, they will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Am I Eligible?

Eligible donors are limited to businesses based in Missouri, or individuals who generate income from certain Missouri-based activities.
